^_^ Love this photo so much. Something about Fluttershy pouring her soul out to Pinkie Pie, who obviously is also down, either from Flutters' story or, well, maybe just life in general... The posing is just awesome! KP Shadow Squirrel, um, I kinda took this photo, coloured it digitally, and got Andrea Libman to sign it. It started up last year when I set my mind on going to Bronycon. Seeing how Fluttershy was the character that got me hooked on the show, I wanted to meet Andrea and get her autograph. Preferably on something with both characters. I just loved this art so much I knew this was the one. However I wanted the ponies to look a little more like themselves against the antique washed tones. So a little work in paint shop pro gave me a most excellent piece, and what an incredible experience it was meeting her last year in Seacaucus. I have it framed on my wall, it's one of my most favorite pieces of art, when I look at it those memories all come back. lh6.googleusercontent.com/-FBI… Also, if I might ask, did you have any inspiration for the posing. A short while after Bronycon I managed to purchase a postcard from another artist I like, gothic gourd girl. It's of a ghost and skeleton, almost exactly the same poses as Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie. Nearly flipped when I saw that cause it reminded me so much of this.
Ah no problem at all! I know that feeling, some of the songs I wrote over a year ago or more, I go back to re-listen and to relearn, and I'm all "what? why and how did I write this!" hehe ^_^ Thanks again!
Why do I think that Pinkie or Pinkimina would actually be comfortable and act normal like a decent friend around Fluttershy, I mean, the picture shows what I wish normal conversations at MLP could be right now.
They drink tea through straws? Oh whatever, that doesn't matter. This is great. I seriously can't decide whether I liked the 3D stuff more than this anymore. Both ponies are drawn so well, they just fit perfectly with their established characters.
I haven't seen much fanart of these two particular ponies but I love what you did with them. Pinkamena? If I am not mistaken? Yeah, I like how she is the one who is listening to Fluttershy-because if it had been Pinkie Pie instead, she would be talking Fluttershy's ear off.
I really enjoy this piece, it just seems subdued and relaxing. My guess is the only time Pinkie would be able to hold still long enough for a tea party is when her hair's gone straight, and Fluttershy is taking advantage of the opportunity.
